Well, with all those rewards and no minimum balance requirement, there’s no reason to wait any longer – level up your checking account today! 


Explaining the rewards of Fox Rewards Checking Fox Rewards checking logo

We listed the rewards you get with Fox Rewards Checking above, but let’s take a deeper dive and check out exactly what you’re getting with a Fox Rewards Checking account. 

  • 5.00% APY Up to Your First $5,0001 
    • Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you need $5,000 in your account to get 5.00% APY. It just means you get 5.00% APY on the first $5,000 in your account. And you get 0.50% APY on everything beyond that first $5,000. 
  • Early Payroll Access2 
    • Have you ever needed your paycheck a day or two earlier? If you’re like most of the world, you have. With Fox Rewards Checking, Fox will post your payroll direct deposits on the day they’re received, which may be up to two days earlier than the scheduled posting date. 
  • Up to $15 in ATM Fees Refunded3
    • Fox ATMs don’t charge Fox members, but we’ve got no control over other ATMs. We can, however, refund your ATM fees – which is exactly what we’ll do, up to $15 each month
